We would need at least 2xDMs if you want to include N'Dombele
I would agree if you are talking about N'Dombele that actually cares. And I'm not all that old school when it comes to effort, but I do expect players to at least try.
I would argue Lo Celso got treated "worse" than N'Dombele early on this season, but quite astonishing to see the difference in their approach to things. Doesn't mean I don't think N'Dombele can get there, but most likely he won't. A new DM and Winks is my guess. Still OK to me even if it isn't as mouth watering as the idea of a N'Dombele that plays the way he should.
I'm going to be patient with Ndombele. He did have a groin injury which can go on for ages so hopefully he's over that now and get on with it. Dier is a good comparison. He was pretty dreadful at the start of the season after illness and injury but now looks like a new man with plenty of energy and drive. Hope Ndombele makes it because he's phenominally talented
